Explore the mysterious world of the rainforest with author Alex Shoumatoff as he describes his ascent of the Nhamunda River, a little-known tributary of the Amazon that is as long as the Hudson River.

The second part of the book describes the author's two month journey in Zaire, a place that is an anarchic collection of tribes rather than a country.
